Chapped Lips

What are Chapped Lips?

Chapped lips are characterized by cracking, fissuring, and peeling of the skin of the lips. Lips that are chapped feel uncomfortable, and they crack and peel. Unfortunately, many people aggravate the problem by repeatedly licking their lips to moisten them.

Treatments

A light moisturizing lip balm that's free of camphor or menthol but contains ingredients with emollient properties such as beeswax, shea butter and natural oils is best for chapped lips. Make sure it contains a sunscreen, and reapply as often as necessary. At night, intensify the treatment by using a heavier emollient ointment. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Chapped Lips

Chapped lips are a common problem during the cold winter months, especially for people who spend a lot of time outdoors. Lips that are chapped feel uncomfortable, and they crack and peel. Unfortunately, many people aggravate the problem by repeatedly licking their lips to moisten them. This only makes the problem worse.

What Causes Them?

The most common cause of chapped, cracked lips is dryness. Lips normally have a thin layer of moisture covering them for protection. The cold winds of winter combined with dry indoor heat can remove enough of this protective moisture layer to cause lips to become dry and cracked. Skin in the lip area is also thinner, which predisposes lips to moisture loss.

On the other hand, some medical problems can also cause chronically dry, cracked lips including an underactive thyroid gland, autoimmune diseases, allergies and chronic mouth breathing. Allergies to ingredients in toothpaste can cause problems as well as some medications that dry out the lips and mouth. That's why it's a good idea to see a doctor if chapped lips are a persistent problem.
